My ex-husband and the father of my children recently died from a overdose. He was 50%, but applied for 100% disability 4 months before his death. He went to VA’s rehab 1 time and then went to Rehab/PTSD in South Dakota for 12-weeks and again 1 year later. He was signed up for PTSD clinic to start 8 days before his death. This doesn’t include the ongoing counseling he was receiving through the VA. Is it worth filing a DIC claim on their behalf? I am fighting social security and don’t know if I want to add fighting the VA if it is a lost cause.
